3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. This yellow orange ale poured with a nice one inch head that reduced down to a lasting quarter inch. The smell is sweet malt with floral hop odors. The taste is sweet with a good hop balance. The mouthfell and carbonation are very good with a slightly dry finish. A very refeshing brew. I'm happy to see beers of this quality being produced so close to home. I ve been to the Brewery a few times but that was back before I started rating. I think its time for a another visit.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Four Peaks in Tempe, pours a clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out subdued citrus hopping and biscuity malt. Flavour brings out floral hops and bready caramel malt. Reasonably balanced but pretty unexciting. Solid.

Tap. Not bad for a bitter but nothing to really stand up and take notice either. Breast malts with hints of caramel. Light citrus more in flavor than nose and light spicy dry hops.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at a Four Peaks bar in Sky Harbor International Airport. The pour is a clear golden orange with a thin white head and some solid lace. The aroma is lightly malty and very very plain. Maybe a touch of hops. The flavor is also very basic. There is a good malt here with a decent bit of hop bitterness, but nothing else. The mouth feel is thin and slick with a minimal level of carbonation and a lingeringly sweet malty aftertaste. Not very great for an ESB

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted from can. Pours a hazy orange amber with off white head. Sweet aroma of biscuits and bread, caramel, toffee and some earthy notes. Taste has moderate sweetness with mild bitter backbone. Flavors similar to nose. A little thin overall like most English bitters but overall an excellent beer for the style.
